capsule vs oil cbd reddit

GreenMountin is awesome, but really its better to let the capsules absorb sublingual too, they a re just predosed. They taste good.

I understand maybe the brand being better, but are capsules really just as good? Thanks for the recommendation

My doctor wants me to take Plus CBD oil capsules, I'm not sure if that's a good switch from using the bluebird one sublingually.

I take very little at a time (4mg 6x/day) otherwise I "feel" it too much. She wants me to take like 3-4 15mg plus cbd capsules a day, but I'm not sure that's cost effective if I'm losing most of it through digestion There's no way I can handle 15mg sublingually at once!

I believe that sublingual is faster & better as more of it gets into your system right away where swallowing it approximately 30% gets into your system.

What are the pros and cons of each? Has anyone ever spilled a tincture? That'd be my fear.

I have gotten a tincture on my mouth or had drops miss on the way up, I've had capsules explode or get crushed. The big advantages of capsules IMO are easy use in public, consistent dosage, and they seem to last forever (3 years at room temp easy).

Which would have more precise dosing?

I'm pretty new to CBD but am looking to order from Green Mountain today unless there are other better recommendations.

Each have pros, which is why we made a chewable tablet that is absorbed through the mouth, but has the probability of a capsule, and is also exceptionally discreet.

So, I’ve been looking into using CBD to treat my anxiety however I have a few questions regarding dosage and which method to use to take the CBD. It seems taking CBD sublingually has the highest bioavailability, however looking at some of the CBD tincture products its quite common for each dropper to contain around 1.5-4mg of CBD per drop and it seems an effective dose is between 20-30mg for a lot of people. Given this I would end up using up a bottle extremely fast and it would be very costly, where as you can get CBD capsules for cheaper which have between 15-30mg CBD per capsule, however capsules are less bioavailable.

I would recommend choosing the delivery style you are most comfortable with. For me, that's sublingually. Then start at about 5 mg per day for two or three days, and if you don't see a difference, increase to 7 or 8 mg. I take it by splitting the drops between morning and evening, so at 6 am I take X number of drops, and take an equal number at 6 pm for my daily dose.

Basically, I’m trying to find the most cost effective way of using CBD to help with my anxiety and any advice on what I should do in terms of using CBD oil sublingually or using capsules and any other help would be extremely helpful. Also, The numbers i've used are estimates on lots of products I've seen and are just being used as an example, i'm also from the UK if that helps with recommendations/ information.

Please flair your posts. Here's how

I think most of us have found that 8 to 12 mg sublingually is enough for anxiety. I'm always surprised by the dosage rates I see in articles! Part of the reason is that I have a bell curve effect going on . if I get above about 12 mg the CBD is less effective, so I improve things by cutting back. I wonder if some of the studies are missing benefits because of over-dosing.
